If you liked this summer’s tenniscore look, you’re going to love winter 2022’s sporty-yet-comfortable trend: après-ski.
The unofficial post-slopes uniform of bright puffer jackets, chunky cable knits, and Fair Isle everything, après-ski got its first commercial lift from skiers in the 1950s and ’60s. Fashion has revisited and updated the look every few seasons since, in ways big (Karl Lagerfeld’s final collection for Chanel in 2019, which transported guests to an alpine setting dusted with fake snow and lined with mini chalets) and small (smatterings of après-ski sweaters and winter accessories at Tory Burch, Coach, J.Crew, and more).
Like clockwork, après-ski clothing emerged again in the fall/winter 2021 runway collections. New snowy resort-ready capsules followed, including Isabel Marant’s exploration of ski fashion for Mytheresa and Gucci’s second collaboration with The North Face. Shoppers have happily followed designers into the fresh powder: In December, Lyst reported that global searches for ski jackets, pants, and suits were surging by double digits, with a preference for classic brands like Moncler and Fusalp.
Après-ski clothing has its practical side, but it’s not just for hard-core skiers and snowboarders. Like the tennis fashion that ruled summer 2021, it evokes an entire lifestyle. Every time you wear après-ski clothing, you’re tapping into relaxed luxury. For anyone experiencing another COVID-19 surge, après-ski clothing is also a form of fashion escapism—dressing for the alpine lodge on your vision board even if you’re unable to travel. Below, find 25 pieces of après-ski clothing for your coolest winter yet, on or off the slopes.

Start your après-ski wardrobe with Halfdays, a label dedicated to ski gear by and for women. Former pro skier Kiley McKinnon is in the C-suite, so you know this gear can handle high altitude skiing along with everyday winter wear. Key details: All Halfdays apparel is made with vegan materials and comes in extended sizes. We’re loving the belted Aston Jacket, a layer that’s classic après-ski by way of Princess Diana.
Tecnica Nylon Warm Winter Waterproof Snow Boot
First, they were seen at every ski resort in the 1970s; then, they had an early-2000s resurgence; now, they’re once again the finishing touch on winter outfits all over. Moon Boots have a distinctive, pumped-up look that is both futuristic and nostalgic; they’re also so warm, you won’t need thick socks.
The Pro Fleece Kit
If you’re building an aprés-ski look to wear at the ski resort, you’ll need fleecy layers underneath those vintage sweaters and waterproof ski pants. Bandier’s accessible set will keep the cold out with flair. Mix and match a thermal turtleneck and leggings with four different colors and patterns, all in sizes XXS to 3X.
White Other Materials Coat
Celine’s fall/winter collection wasn’t stuffed with alpine references like its runway peers. But you can still find the ski chalet aesthetic if you know where to look, starting with this oversized pullover we can’t wait to bundle up in.
Aurora Flared Ski Pants
Ask true après-ski fans where they buy their boldest jackets and pants, and they’ll point to Perfect Moment. The brand’s designers are pros at blending ultra-functional features with eye-catching retro flourishes, like these sky-blue flared pants made from breathable, waterproof fabric.
You don’t need snow boots to partake in the latest après-ski wave. Shearling flats with indoor-outdoor soles are just as relevant—and dare we say, even more comfortable.
Camil Cable Sweater
When it comes to après-ski sweaters, there are four words to guide you: the bigger, the better.
Après Sport Striped Pants
Curve Ski High Waisted Overalls

Keep your hands toasty and ready to text with these statement fingerless gloves.

It’s worth repeating: Base layers don’t need to be boring. When you want something more festive under your ski pants or with an off-duty sweater, swap your black fleece-lined leggings for this pair.

Winter whites have never looked, or been made, better. Frankie Shop’s newest puffer coat is made entirely from recycled materials.
Matek is a BAZAAR.com editor favorite for sustainable activewear, including ski jackets and pants that’ll last for seasons. While you’re browsing the coats, don’t overlook its winter accessories like this convenient layer made from deadstock fleece. Matek describes it as a scarf you don’t need to wrap: Pull it over your head and secure the straps, and no chill will reach your neck and shoulders.
Hit the Slopes Salopette
Women wanted more of Free People’s Hit the Slopes jacket; Free People responded by reinterpreting its plush material as an entire ski jumpsuit. Between the soft teddy fleece, roomy pockets, and layering potential, this relaxed piece is a must for any last-minute winter trips on your agenda.
